This is a zoetrope made from a set of Reader’s Digest Condensed books. It uses pages from To Kill a Mockingbird and will be auctioned off on Friday, September 27 at the AIGA Discovered event during the 2013 Design Week in St. Louis. Yes, the mockingbird condenses as the zoetrope spins. More images will be posted after the exhibit, but in the meantime here’s a short Instagram video by Zoë Scharf.
